We are a month into AAU season and we’re seeing a few players making their names more widely known after 2 NCAA live periods this month. Here’s a look at some Junior prospects who are really boosting their stock this month.
The Butler standout has had multiple double-doubles and a 31 point game over the last few weeks. With his size and ability to play on or off the ball, Dayton has shown himself to be a mid major D1 player and offers should come soon.
MJ has had a really good April and shown that he can run a team and facilitate or create his own shot. Effective in screen and roll scenarios, Wardlow will need to be among the best players in the 4th region this year for the Purples to get past Warren Central. Recruiting wise, the 6’1 PG should be a no brainer scholarship player for every NAIA and D2 in Kentucky.
Wardlow’s running mate with Phenom Gold, Taveon is an athletic slasher who has shown he can finish through traffic and take contact. Smith was one of the best players in the 5th region this past season and could be the front runner for region player of the year next year. He just picked up an offer from Motlow CC and could see more coming his way.
Wahl has been one of my favorite “under the radar” prospects in the class since seeing him last summer and fall. Nolan battles down low and has shown he can step out and create his own offense when given the opportunity. He was named first team all Adidas Gold last week and will be a steal for some college before signing day next year.
Potentially a top 10-15 kid in the class, state wide, Fitzer is a big bruising post player who has shown he’s an above average rebounder with good shot blocking instincts and the ability to score consistently around the bucket. Charlie could be the most under the radar post in Kentucky.
Neal is still riding the momentum of a really good Junior season and is now having a breakout start to his AAU season also. Grant is going to be my pick for the best Senior guard in the region next year. Considering his strong academics and basketball prowess, high academic schools should be all over him.
